One Size Fits All

fun club!

Arranging child care is like fiddling with one of those rigid fun-with-shapes puzzles.

And your needs most resemble a rhomboid.

Thankfully, Fun Club, a fully licensed child care center, is flexible. All week long (Monday through Thursday) the doors are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday nights they keep it rocking until 1 a.m. (Date night, anyone?)

During the day, age-appropriate activities (learning numbers and letters, painting) are organized by certified preschool instructors. Weekend fun includes movies, karaoke, carnivals, yoga, and chess tournaments for kids ages 2 to 12.

Plus, drop-ins are welcome.

For convenience, there’s just no parallelogram.
